Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson heaped praise on striker Javier Hernandez after his double secured a 2-1 Champions League victory over Olympique Marseille.

Chicharito scored goals in either half to book his team’s place in Friday’s quarter-final draw and kept the dream alive to win the Treble at Wembley.

The 22-year-old signed last summer from Guadalajara for a reported £8million and his manager is very pleased with his progress.

The French Ligue 1 champions made it a difficult night for the Red Devils and nearly caused an upset after Wes Brown’s late own goal.

But Ferguson was more interested in highlighting the Mexican international’s movement and his blossoming partnership with Wayne Rooney.

“It has developed very well,” Ferguson said to Sky Sports.

“Where Wayne has been playing in the last couple of games, he is a real threat to teams because he has got such power and speed with the ball.

“And, of course, Hernandez is unbelievable, his movement. Did you see his movement for the (opening) goal?

“He has made three different types of run – in, out, in, out – and the boy has just got goals in him.”
